Former Badger and Madison Hall of Famer Rob Andringa joined the show Tuesday to talk about the Badger Hockey Team going back to the Dane County Coliseum.
Andringa said that the Coliseum has character that other newer stadiums don’t have. He talked about how much the facilities have improved since he played. “It’s the way it should be. Every generation and every time you start moving forward it should be better.”
Andringa said that the Coliseum is still his rink of choice. “If somebody asked me today if you could go back to the Kohl Center, go back to the new locker room, or go back to the Coliseum and the old locker room, I would pick the Coliseum everyday of the week and I think most of my teammates would do as well.”
